HK 223

I have sent in a number of HK 223s for grading, and they all have come back as Details for "corrosion". I can't remember any other medal having this much "bad luck". Has anyone else had this experience?

I have certified quite a few St Gaudens HK 223 pieces and none have come back with details grading. I have seen this medal in lower grades because it was quite popular, but it is also available in nice condition.

I have an HK-223 that appears to have a plating (looks like gold - need to get certified) over the copper. It was struck in 1892. Has anyone heard of this?
